Oral Surgery referrals at CrownWood Dental
Patients can be self referred or referred to us from their own dentist but only on a private basis.
Oral surgery is one of our specialities at CrownWood Dental.
The term oral surgery is used to describe a procedure such as the removal of impacted wisdom teeth or broken down teeth, this is due to the procedure being the same as having an operation and you must look after the area to speed healing and reduce the risk of infection.
Many General Dental Practitioners will refer patients if they have impacted wisdom teeth or broken down teeth. The procedure to remove wisdom teeth that are impacted is often made difficult because they lie close to vital facial nerves and broken teeth can be very difficult to remove. The majority of straightforward oral surgery procedures are carried out under local anaesthetic or sometimes with sedation.
Oral surgery referrals at CrownWood Dental are carried out by Dr Raji Ranganathan.
